Don't Forget These Great Books for Sale By R.C. Harvey!

Welcome to the webbed and wired edition of R&R, aristotle. We’ll be doing the same sort of song and dance here as we do in print: reviewing the latest comics and cartoon-related books and ranting about trends and abuses and unfathomable foolishnesses. Each installment will stay here for about four weeks, with a new one coming in just about every other week or so. If you don’t have the time to ponder every punctuation mark in this deathless prose and merely want to see what might be there that would interest you, we suggest you scroll down the page looking for the bold-face type that heralds the notables who reside herein this week. So here we go with Opus 352 (and reprises of Opus 350 and 351):



Opus 352 Bunny Bonus: Iranian Artist Freed, Iowa Freelance Editoonist Fired & Trumpery in the Wake of the Indiana Primaries (May 7, 2016).


Opus 351: Reuben Nominees, Ohman’s Pulitzer & Reviews of New Black Panther, New Moon Knight, New Black Widow, Dell’s Pogo, Mandrake, and Graphic Novels Drama, and Magic Pen (April 30, 2016).


Opus 350: Big 350th Celebration with A Fling for the Occasion, Dennis the Menace  Anniversary, Playboy’s Explanation & Trumpery and the Fearsome Megyn Kelly Pinups (April 1, no foolin’, 2016).





Opus 352 (May 7, 2016). Another Rapid Rabbit Extra—a Bunny Bonus, the dubious benefit of being a $ubscriber to your friendly neighborhood Rancid Raves: stupendous events in the world of comics find their way into your e-mail box quickly. Rapidly, even. Prompting the Bonus this time, a report that Iranian artist-activist Atena Farghadani, sentenced to a 12-year prison term for drawing members of the Iranian parliament as animals, has been freed. And since we were rising into the digital ether for that occasion, we also report on the firing of an Iowa freelance editoonist who did what no one working on a newspaper is supposed to do— offend an advertiser—and the Trumpet’s emergence as the presumptive candidate of the Grandstanding Obstructionist Pachyderm, profusely illustrated with editoonist reactions. And we note, sadly, that Michael Ramirez’s 10-year gig with the Investor’s Business Daily seems at an end.  All of which you can find on the other side of the $ubscribers Wall.
